Eating Disorder Treatment
What is it?
Disordered eating can come in many shapes and forms such as Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge-Eating, Compulsive Overeating, AFRID, and Obesity Secondary to Eating Disorders.
In other words, you either restrict your eating to a point that’s unhealthy, eat large amounts of unhealthy food to the point of feeling sick, purge your food or get rid of it through laxatives or diuretics, or avoid and restrict food intake to a point where it’s unhealthy and dangerous to your well-being.
